Day 14 : Loop Knit Stitch : #100daysofknitstitches

How to make the Knit Loop Stitch video!

Today’s stitch is the Loop Knit Stitch.

It’s a crazy stitch!

I knit Continental style and the examples I found were for English, so I hope this method helps those of you who knit Continental style! :)

I found a Loop Knit Stitch in an old book, but I couldn’t recreate it, so I did some research online and found another one that was similar, but I couldn’t recreate it either, so I came up with this… ;)

What would you make with this stitch?

{My daughter saw this swatch sitting on my desk and now she wants a blanket like this. I made it, so the thought of creating a blanket with this stitch didn’t cross my mind, that would be an undertaking to say the least! It’s quite a finger workout. However, the other side of this is beautiful! I’ll get pics of it and share it later.}

Yesterday’s stitch was the Bamboo Knit Stitch. {Click here to watch the video}

I ended on a row 2 and then BO in the *K1, P1* pattern.
